Lists with This Book. Dec 04, Moataz rated it it was amazing Shelves: This book was the first book which I read in Computer science. It was three years before and all of my experience in dealing with this device which called computer is how to restart and shutdown it! After reading about seven chapters I fall in programming love, and only two chapters ahead and it becomes one of the most interesting things that I did before.

I was reading it in an academic course at the first level of my faculty, and after finishing the course we was studied only twelve chapters from this book, and I completed the book and some of its programming assignments on my own. All of this was because the extremely impressive illustration style of this book.
Some programming topics I didn’t found it as simple as here anywhere, some of them are introductory such as Multidimensional arrays and functions, and some of them may be more advanced such as pointers. It’s a very powerful book to begin learning programming with, despite it illustrates a very old programming language in the programming world which is C programming I heartily endorse this book, it is one of my favorites and is so well written I almost consider it literature!
It is best used as a teaching book, I don’t use it for reference there are other books that are better at that. But even if you already know C, this book is a great tool for helping you understand it better. By the way, I was there as a student at the very beginning when Dr. King was putting this book together, I even got to proofread some of his early drafts, maybe my name is in the ac I heartily endorse this book, it is one of my favorites and is so well written I almost consider it literature!
King was putting this book together, I even got to proofread some of his early drafts, maybe my name is in the acknowledgments, I can’t remember. One thing I do remember is that he had the idea to put notes in the margins as references to other sections of the book, for further reading, kind of like web links on paper.
This was before any of us really used the Internet as much as we do today, you understand. It was a very creative and fun idea, although I have no idea how much people actually used them when reading the book. Dec 04, Josh added it Shelves: A very detailed treatment of C. C is a powerful and at times frustrating language.
This book helps simplify the language quite a bit. Mar 29, hamid shahrouzi rated it liked it Recommends it for: Dec 16, Dave Gill rated it really liked it. Dec 01, Marshall rated it really liked it Shelves: This is an excellent, thorough tutorial on the C programming language.
C Programming: A Modern Approach, 2nd Edition
I loved how simple the explanations were. Nothing was dumbed down or belabored, but a beginner to C will feel right at home here. Examples were straightforward, and only offered when they were helpful.
It’s prigramming full of exercises and programming projects. All those weirdnesses about C that make people scratch their heads, this book either explains it, or a This is an excellent, thorough tutorial on the C programming language. All those weirdnesses about C that make people scratch their heads, this book either explains it, or at least admits that it’s weird. Just this alone k.h.king so helpful to people new to the language, because it reassures them they’re not dumb.
Every language has its warts, so it’s important to know they’re just warts, and not just a failure to understand. This book tries hard to be thorough, and cover the entire language. This is probably too ambitious. There are some dark corners of the standard library, particular in C99, that midern one progtamming to know about except very tiny niches.
This is especially true for advanced mathematics. This stuff is so specialized that I almost wonder if it shouldn’t have been included in the standard. That’s what 3rd-party libraries are for. But it’s in the language, so this book includes it. The title seems a little funny in It’s a “modern approach,” and yet the version of C it covers is decades old. Even the latest version is already five years old. Time for a 3rd edition? It’s kind of strange for a book to call itself modern when it’s no longer modern.
I guess C works on a different time scale from the rest of technology, and I guess that’s what I love about it. While everything else is constantly changing, C is still basically C. Jul 23, caisah rated it liked it Shelves: This is a comprehensive book covering the C programming language.
The book tries to cover all the aspects of C, underlining the C99 standards. Every chapter contains 4 parts. The first part explains the paradigm and sometimes shows code snippets or entire programs.

The third part contains some exercises one can answer by just reading the text or by writing This is a comprehensive book covering the C programming language. The third part contains some exercises one can answer by just reading the text or by writing and executing a small program, and the forth proposes some programming exercises one should do in order to gain full understanding of the subject.
The book is a little too thick and one would better use it as a reference book.
The writing is OK but some of the explanations are long and a few subjects not very easy to grasp. Also there are some pieces progrwmming code that are difficult for a newcomer to easily understand, but I guess that is the author’s style.
Also the exercises are most of the time related to the previous chapters which makes it hard eidtion follow and do it all. The main advantage of this book is clearly the coverage of the “modern” C99 standard.
C Programming: A Modern Approach – Second Edition
Every chapter has references to this standard and a clear explanation of what was changed or improved. Overall it is a good book to have but I would not call it exceptionally. Nov 06, idle sign rated it really liked it. k.n.kinv
Jun 07, Maximiliano Contreras rated it it was amazing Shelves: Easy to read, full of real insight and, probably, the best all-in reference I had encounter since I started to learn C. In general, I appriach my reservations with big all-in books, but this was a surprise.
A delight, well above the classic C book. Also gives some initial hints for serious programming low level, modularity and error handling. Mar 30, David rated it it was amazing. This text was by far the most accessible. Really got far with this. May 14, Paul Nerger rated it it was amazing. Best C text for learning.

A perfect book for learning C programming language. Mar 13, Krasytod rated it really liked it. Sep 16, JManInPhoenix rated it it was amazing. Excellent overall intro into C programming.
